I have now had my appointment and said I would follow up. ON Tuesday I went to the Royal Brompton and had tests ie Echo, CT scon annd Lung Function test. They showed that I was a suitable candidate for the Coils trial. Apart from these tests you have to have completed a Pulmonary Rehab course. They then send your info to Americas as they are the sponsors of this trial. If they agree that you are a candidate then the trial can go ahead. Via computer generated selection 50% get the operation 50% are put in a controlled group. If you are in the controlled group then you have to attend the clinics for a year and after that you can have to coils operation too.
Hope that info helps Davey1192
